    Default IDF facing shortage of new soldiers

    In light of the anticipated shortfall of soldiers in key combat and other units - and as the Tal Law exempting the ultra-Orthodox from military service faces its expiration - this is the time for the IDF to reorganize army service across the board.

    Shortage of new soldiers? Isn't Israel one of "western" states where population growth is positive due to birth-rate and not to immigration?
